Sinatra: Soundtrack To The CBS Mini-Series

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Sinatra has been seen as the only way of portraying Sinatra's life -- as a miniseries. The problem is, of course, that the curiosity is really in the undocumented portions of Sinatra's life -- his early career, for the most part, when he was on the way to making himself a household name. Later in life Sinatra was more of a public figure, thus, the reasoning goes, less interesting in being better documented. The miniseries, then, was weighted toward the early years, taking everything after the '50s in something of a rush. As a result, this soundtrack album, drawn from Sinatra's recordings for four record companies and throwing in two sides from Bing Crosby and one from Billie Holiday is biased in favor of the ...

The problem is, of course, that the curiosity is really in the undocumented portions of Sinatra's life -- his early career, for the most part, when he was on the way to making himself a household name. Later in life Sinatra was more of a public figure, thus, the reasoning goes, less interesting in being better documented. The miniseries, then, was weighted toward the early years, taking everything after the '50s in something of a rush. As a result, this soundtrack album, drawn from Sinatra's recordings for four record companies and throwing in two sides from Bing Crosby and one from Billie Holiday is biased in favor of the earlier material, providing more than disc of sides drawn from the Columbia and RCA Victor catalogs, with Capitol covered in a rush and Reprise barely covered at all the obligatory "My Way" does close out the set, however. This is not to say that the set is a waste of time. Far from it, as this really does represent the only time Sinatra's work has been compiled from so many sources. In addition, some attempt at restoration has been made though noise reduction can't cover the worst surface noise on the older cuts. It gives an interesting view of Sinatra's growth as a vocalist, with his peak period definitely coming with the Capitol sides with Nelson Riddle. Given this as a starting point, too, it's possible to gradually expand the listener's range via the trio of box sets available The Voice from Columbia, The Capitol Years, and The Reprise Years and then through purchases of individual albums -- less consistent, of course, during the later Reprise years. Overall, a very good condensation of Sinatra through the years and, yes, it could have been better; there's much left out and a worthy project indeed. ~ Steven McDonald
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
This is the two-disc soundtrack to a 1992 television miniseries about the life of Frank Sinatra. There is no musical scoring, and there are no re-recordings. Rather, this is a collection of 30 songs recorded between 1931 and 1979, most by Sinatra, although Bing Crosby, Benny Goodman, and Billie Holiday also make appearances. What is notable about the set is that it is the only album to combine tracks from Sinatra's recordings on Columbia, RCA Victor, Capitol, and Reprise, and thus the only one offering the breadth of his work over a period of 40 years. Of course, it remains a sampler, and there's far more great Sinatra material, but the unique circumstances make this an excellent compilation for the beginner.
